Quiltathon progress for Saturday

This morning Jim and I headed out and ran a few errands and then stopped for a quick lunch. Came home put all the meat away and put supper in the crockpot. It smells yummy! Then I sat down and made backings for 3 quilt tops! Yahoo! Finally some sewing got done while on vacation.

Stash Report #41

Well unfortunately there isn't much to report this week. I did put in a few stitches on the halloween wallhanging but that is all. Today Jim and I ripped out the carpet in the living and dining rooms and got that all tied up for the garbage man. Now to move on and start patching the holes/cracks and get the paint picked out for the walls. We won't really be doing a whole lot more to these rooms until after the first of the year. So here's a before and an after of the carpet episode today.

Good Grief!!

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I last posted. Things have been a tad crazy here at home and also at work...boss came back from his summer long trip to Greece. So it's time to get used to having him around again....he's not in the best of moods as business is we all do alot of smiling and nodding around him and then run outside and scream! LOL I haven't been doing much on the sewing front lately....However today I did get some more buttonhole stitching done on the halloween wallhanging. And I've got the threads pulled to the back and tied off. I might sit down and do a little more tonight, as Jim is at a business dinner and Heather went to the mall, so it's me and Eddie!
